Weighing available business options at the end of a marriage

No matter how small the beginning, a family business can flourish over time. Perhaps you and your spouse have put a great deal of time and effort into the economic growth of your company, and what began as a concept has turned into an outstanding success. Chances are, you probably don't want to see all your hard work come to naught.

Property division involves splitting of marital assets and debt

The divorce process can be messy particularly when the two spouses do not see eye to eye on the financial aspect of it. Property division, for example, is often a major point of contention. However, a few tips may help with navigating money-related matters during the dissolution of a marriage in Pennsylvania.

Addressing property division during separation may be helpful

After being married for multiple decades, some couples are ready to call it quits. After all, if they have only 20 to 30 years left of their lives, they understandably want the freedom to do as they please. Being legally separated before getting divorced may be a wise move for those contemplating the dissolution of a marriage in Pennsylvania, particularly when many assets or high-value assets have to undergo property division.

Property division involving retirement plan requires QDRO

Those who have just gotten divorced are understandably ready to move forward with their separate lives. However, shutting the door on a previous marriage too quickly may have some unexpected consequences from a financial standpoint. A couple of tips related to property division may be helpful for protecting financial assets following a divorce in Pennsylvania, especially for those nearing retirement.

Planning for future medical needs is good for you and your family

It can be difficult to think about the future and what kind of health care you may need in the years ahead, but it can also be a beneficial step to have certain protections in place for both you and your Pennsylvania family. You can do this by drafting a living will and having a health care power of attorney.

Property division can be impacted by online dating website

Sometimes, dating while going through divorce, or soon after divorce, can be a helpful mental escape from the emotional challenges of the dissolution of the marriage. However, when it comes to dating websites, caution is necessary. In some cases, information on one spouse's profile in Pennsylvania actually ends up harming his or her divorce case when dealing with issues such as property division.
